I guess I'm old fashioned, but I am not attracted to a movie that features teenagers killing each other as part of a "game" designed to show the ruthlessness of a dominant regime even though the movie is purportedly well made. But if I needed a reason not to see the movie I could not find a better one than to learn that Lionsgate the maker of the movie "has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Harry Potter Alliance's Imagine Better Project over the charitable campaign, 'Hunger is not a game.' The studio believes that the group, which is supporting Oxfam’s GROW food sustainability project, is 'piggybacking off of' the marketing for its latest box-office hit The Hunger Games." Lionsgate threatens a law suit though it is unlikely it will follow through. In addition, Liongate invites it's fans to come to their site and join in its efforts to combat hunger in its cooperation with other charities. Of course, I will be right over.
